Re: It is possible to fix a minor scratch in an audio CD?
It depends whether it's due to a scratch (yes) or a delamination (no). That's the dirty little secret of compact discs, which when they came out were expected to have an indefinite lifespan. But many older compact disks are delaminating, or the layers making up the disc are separating, and when that happens, they're done for. If I remember right, this problem first started cropping up about 15 years ago, so any discs older than that are suspect.
